Berserk Fury Shadow Edge
The BFSE is a powerful high-performance zoid, built for Raven to keep up with his high degree of piloting skill and withstand being fused with the organoid Shadow. This Fury has been outfitted with four blades on it’s back, and two energy blades connected to the boosters on its thighs. The Lucifer Blades are heavy broadsword like weapons that can can smash through nearly anything with their weight, but can also be used for defense, much like the Geno Breaker’s X-breakers. The Seraphim blades are smaller, faster attacking blades that have even further movement, able to curve inward like a scythe. To compensate for the extra weight this zoid has been fitted with two extra ion boosters on its thighs. In its ultimate attack the “Blade of the Fallen Angel” all of its blades will point forward as it rushes the enemy, similar to the Blade Liger or Zero Schneider. It is the final zoid given to Raven in the Zoids: Chaotic Century manga, rather than the Geno Breaker in the anime, to be pitted against Van’s Liger Zero Ceasar the King.

This is one of my longest running projects and I’m so glad to see it finally complete. I painted the base HMM Berserk Fury with flat black, and used Pearl black to give its armor a nice but menacing shine. After that I used metal flake blue to accent and give the zoid some contrast. I couldn’t find any official colored pictures of the BFSE but I knew it was black, and since Van’s Liger Zero is white and red, I thought blue would be a nice inverted color scheme. I replaced the standard fury claws with kotobukiya unite swords and also used the metal flake blue on them, I love how weird and icy it looks. I also added some little accenty bits to his head, it was supposed to look closer to Shadow after all. Anyway I love this zoid, definatly one of my favorites, I can’t wait to give it it’s own spot in the future, let me know what you think! :D

Exam is done and now back to work on Panzer.  Updates should be more regular now since I’m not studying like crazy. I’d say about 75% of this kit is finished so have some legs and body.

It’s so tempting to snap together for a picture but I need to keep the parts separated until I can feed the hybrid cannon wires through. Dx

Goal is to have this guy done by the end of the month.  I’m so ready to move on to another project as this was a 7 month build from start to finish. >.>

I’ve been working on this all week. Custom HMM Liger Zero Phoenix Conversion. Basically modified a Hasbro Fire Phoenix kit into compatible armor for HMM Liger Zero. My goal was to make it removable, and I am happy I managed it! Also gave it a paint job, deeper richer red than the light red Hasbro paint, and gold rather than the Hasbro yellow. I tried making it look more like it does in the anime. I am happy with how he turned out since aside from the Blue Leoblaze I last posted, I’ve never painted a kit before.

Zoids Liger Zero Ice Phoenix
The fuzor combination of Snow Liger and Ice Phoenix, by fuzing, the liger gains flight capabilities.This zoid is capable of ground and air combat even at high speeds, armed with Snow Ligers melee weapons and the Ice Phoenix’s long range weaponry, it is a very versatile and powerful unit. Most of the ligers armor has been replaced with the Phoenix, and it’s long tail has been added to the ligers, to act as a stabilizer to assist the pilot control the extreme speed of this zoid. The power output of this zoid far exceeds the standalone Zoids, even large scale Zoids such as Iron Kong would be wise to steer clear of it.

Model description: Fuzing a Tomy Fire Phoenix with a Kotobukiya Liger Zero was not an easy task. The fact that I wanted to customize the crap out of the Phoenix didn’t help either. Anyway after fabricating some custom connection pieces and figuring everything out I have to say I freaking love this model. I honestly can’t decide if I love the Phoenix more fuzed or unfuzed, it’s just so friggin pretty. I had to switch some pieces around as they just didn’t work the same on an hmm liger as they did the original tomy one. For example the front and rear shoulder armor is actually swapped around from how it should be, and the tail piece is supposed to be on its back! But in the end this is one of my new favorites, even with how much space it’s gonna take up with these huge wings, anyway let me know what you think!
